Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Junior Suite
Traveled with children

We have just returned from 2 weeks on the Indy, departing Southampton on the 10th August, calling at ports in Portugal and Spain.

It turned out to be a cruise of 2 parts, the bits we expected to be good were as always excellent, Crew, superb, entertainment, superb, buffet food, good, MDR food, much improved over the last cruise on Oasis, where the food was really awful in the MDR, so perhaps RCCL have listened.

Ship, looking a bit tired but still very nice, cabin, good, we had a Junior suite at the stern on deck 10, and it was large and pleasant to stay in for 2 weeks.

Cabin Review

Junior Suite

Tired decor, but spacious and comfortable.

Port Reviews


Old town is superb, and we will go back for a short break in the future.
